Online Public Records

Public Works manages official plans, engineering volumes and related materials concerning the streets, squares, places, avenues, courts and other public locations which the City has a vested interest in maintaining as record. These documents show takings, discontinuances, specific repairs, widenings, relocations, easements, licenses, lay-outs, assessments, acceptances, fiber optics and other information concerning Public Works.   Public Works also maintains the official publication "Boston Streets, Squares, Places, Avenues, Courts and Other Public Locations".
